I have been helping a reader work through a new crochet pattern. The one for the water bottle holder. Love it. It’s such a great tutorial to learn how to crochet, helping you learn how to crochet using a range of stitches and interesting patterns. A slip stitch is child’s work. The single crochet stitch is your basic stitch and is also easy enough. How to double crochet is however not as obvious.
To clarify that particular crochet stitch pattern, I thought to share some video instructions with you on how to double crochet ( typically abbreviated as dc).
